TPD said Tucson Fire crews tried to revive the 56-year-old man but were unsuccessful. It was not disclosed whether the man died at the scene or at the hospital.

No police were hurt in the incident, which happened shortly after 9 a.m. in the 2800 block of East Glenn Street. Glenn is closed from North Treat Avenue to North Country Club Road.
